When parents send their children to school, they expect the school to take care of the children and send them back home in good health. Unfortunately, this is not always the case. Schools in California and the rest of the country are a major health concern for parents because they are responsible for about 10-25% of children and adolescent injuries. The types of injuries that can happen to your child in school include:
  • Bullying and other acts of violence at school
  • Crosswalk injuries
  • Discrimination of your child on the basis of race, sex, age, or disability,
  • Accidents in the gym
  • Sexual misconduct that is committed by a staff member
  • Playground injuries
  • School bus accidents
  • Unreasonable or excessive punishments by the school or teachers
  • Injuries that result from negligence by the school district
  • Injuries that result from teacher negligence

California School Injury Laws

According to the California law, school districts and their employees have a duty to take care of students and protect them from injury or death while at school. This duty of care extends to the children when they are within the school and when they are being transported home from school. Therefore, a school is liable for injuries to a child when they are doing activities inside the school or when going home on the school bus.
 
A school is also liable for injury or death that results from the negligence of faculty members, workers, or independent contractors.
 
Parents can also sue the school district for failure to provide a safe environment for students. Further, injuries to students do not have to be physical in order to qualify for compensation. Your child can be compensated for emotional and psychological injury due to bullying, verbal attack, or attacks made by students, faculty, or workers within the school or in school sponsored events.
